I am trying to organise the middle of our itinerary to include Bako & Mulu over 4 or 5 days. I am having difficulty interpreting the airline schedules between Kuching/Miri/Mulu, as well as understanding how much time I should allow in each area, as well as transit.
At the moment we have a few days in Kuching before heading out to Bako. The plan is something like:
Wednesday - midday depart Kuching for Bako, do boat/afternoon walk to/from waterfall & beaches, early evening wildlife spotting etc. Overnight BNP.
Thursday - another chance to spot some wildlife, early morning nature walk? Return to Kuching for flight to Miri (AirAsia 1200-1305) connect to MAS Miri/Mulu (1350-1420) Checkin Mulu NP, afternoon walks to (Deer & lang ??) caves, even viewing of bat exodus?
Friday : More Caves (Clearwater, Moonmilk & Wind)? Canopy Walk?
Saturday : Mulu to Miri (0930-0950) Day at leisure in Miri or fly direct to KL for our final days????
So - will it be possible to squeeze all this in? Are these flight schedules achievable?
Any suggestions for particular walks etc greatly appreciated. I expect there would be some local markets and general sight seeing in Miri to make it worth exploring on Saturday, so it should be worth us spending the extra day here before moving onto KL -yes?
